Volunteer or Donate
The Phoenix VA Health Care System benefits from the services of more than 1,500 individual volunteers each year. Our volunteers provide assistance each day to ensure this remains a health care center of excellence. Our volunteers encompass all ages and experiences from the young to the seasoned senior citizen who bring with them a wealth of life experiences. These volunteers strive to be recognized as leaders in the community and enhance Veteran satisfaction through the delivery of compassionate, high quality care and services.
